Abstract

At high temperatures monolithic materials can no longer fulfill all requirements posed by advanced energy conversion applications. It will be shown how diffusion couples can be used to study metal-ceramic interactions and to develop composite materials. Attention is paid to the development of a hot shell for a combustion heated thermionic energy converter operating at 1450°C. It will be shown how the combination of chemical and physical requirements leads to the design of a trilayer material, consisting of a W emitter, coated with a diffusion barrier of TiN and an outer protective shell of SiC.
